Republican strategist Steve Schmidt said early Wednesday that Democratic presidential nomineeHillary Clinton could win more than 400 Electoral College votes on Nov. 8, adding that "the panic is beginning" among Republicans.

"I think she's trending over 400," Schmidt said during an appearance on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

Schmidt also predicted that Democrats will take control of the Senate and are close to taking the House of Representatives.

"If this election was today, I think Republicans are down 25 seats, as of today, with the trend line going in the wrong direction," he said.

“The panic is beginning."

A Washington Post/Survey Monkey poll released Tuesday showed the former secretary of State leading in enough states to take 304 electoral votes — well above the 270 needed to win.

Clinton is leading Republican Donald Trump by 7.2 points in the RealClearPolitics average of national polling, 49.1 to 41.9 percent.

As of Wednesday, The New York Times gave Clinton a 92 percent chance of winning the election.
